You Can't Be a Disciple Without This!
What are the main components of being a disciple of Jesus? That is, if you had to boil it down to the main ingredients… what are they?

34 And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.
13 And He *went up on the mountain and *summoned those whom He Himself wanted, and they came to Him. 14 And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach
